Wave

2809 S. Ocean Blvd., Highland Beach
561/278-6241
Modern American. You should come for both the sunset and the food. This oceanfront restaurant is a gem tucked inside the Delray Sands resort. From the airy, bubbly interior to the raw bar, the décor is soothing and fun. Try the lobster and crab-stuffed shrimp, the miso-glazed Skuna Bay...
Rafina
6877 S.W. 18th Street, Boca Raton
561/409-3673
Greek. If you find the ambience of most Greek restaurants to be like a frat party with flaming cheese and ouzo, this contemporary, casually elegant spot will be welcome relief. Food and decor favor refinement over rusticity, even in such hearty and ubiquitous dishes as pastitsio and spanakopita. Standout...
Boca Landing
999 E. Camino Real
561/368-9500
The Waterstone Resort & Marina's signature restaurant, Boca Landing, offers the city's only waterside dining and shows off its prime location and views. The mostly small-plates menu features Asian-inflected tuna tartare, green curry mussels and fried calamari. Probably the best dish, though, is the thoroughly continental filet mignon with crab and béarnaise, with wickedly luscious house-made hazelnut gelato coming in a very close second. Dinner nightly.
1 Washington Ave.
Miami Beach
305/673-2800
Cruise ships pass by large picture windows, while a stream of waiters carry thick, juicy, dry-aged steak—filet mignon, prime rib, N.Y. sirloin and rib-eye. Creamed spinach and onion rings are textbook sides.
700 E. Woolbright Road
Boynton Beach
561/737-8822
Simple pleasures soar—full-belly clams, fried sweet and crispy, or a perfectly grilled piece of mahi or bouillabaisse overflowing with tender fish. Don’t miss one of the best Key lime pies around.
1 S. County Road, Palm Beach

HMF

Beneath the staid, elegant setting of The Breakers, HMF is the Clark Kent of restaurants, dishing an extensive array of exciting, inventive, oh-so contemporary small plates. Don’t depart without sampling the dreamy warm
50 S. Ocean Blvd.
Delray Beach
561/278-3364
The former Upper Deck at Boston’s on the Beach is now the more upscale, seafood-oriented spot. The menu ranges from familiar to slightly more inventive, from a classic lobster bisque and crisp-tender fried clam bellies to duck
Harbor Beach Marriott Resort, 3030 Holiday Dr.
Fort Lauderdale
954/765-3129
The menu is heavy on seafood and changes several times a week. We recommend the sautéed Florida red snapper or the indulgent butter-roasted Maine lobster. For dessert, try the popular roasted banana crème brûlée.
840 E Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach
561/665-8484
Burt Rapoport’s ode to laid-back tropical dining is like a day at the beach without getting sand between your toes. Though the restaurant is casual, the kitchen takes its food seriously, whether the steallar flatbreads, the thick and
34 S. Ocean Blvd., Delray Beach
561/274-9404
This favorite is always lively, and alfresco dining is the preferred mode. Entrée choices are enticing, but we went with the penne alla vodka with pancetta, tomato and basil. Also delicious was the costoletta di vitello, a center-cut
